so I had sex today and the condom broke. I'm on birth control but I'm still scared. I'm not very scared about having std's because he hasn't had sex with anyone else and neither have I, but what should I do? I'm supposed to get my period next week, should I wait for that?

If you've been taking birth control pills for at least a month, or are on Depo or Lunelle, you have very little to worry about in terms of pregnancy.

ok
i've been on birth control since i was 13, and i'm 16 now.
should i go to planned parenthood tomorrow just to make sure and to possibly get the 72 hour pill, or can i relax a little bit?
also, in new york state, can you get an abortion without your parents knowledge if you're 16?

ribbon, if you have been on the Pill consistantly for 3 years, they're not likely going to give you emergency cotnraception. However, you ought to go to PP or see a doctor anyway and get an STD screen (so should your partner).
